Over this past Labor Day weekend, my husband and I attended MaxFunCon East in the Pocono mountains of Pennsylvania. We have been to plenty of conventions before - horror conventions, sci-fi and comic conventions, classic film conventions - but we had no idea what to expect about this one. All we knew is that we were fans of a number of MaxFun's podcasts and the other fans we had "met" online all seemed to have the same creative and open spirit. It was an amazing weekend, and I almost feel like apologizing for wandering around with my Pentax K1000 and trying to make it look as creepy as possible. Almost.
It's been an oddly busy summer here. We recently made two quick trips - first to Montreal, a lovely city with amazing food that I very much want to go to again when they aren't experiencing record heat. So hot, in fact, my plans to take photos at the Mount Royal Cemetery were thwarted. (We did at least stop at the scenic overlook though.) Then just two weeks later we went to a beautiful family wedding in Marin, California. Since we were flying in and out of San Francisco anyway, I insisted we tack on an extra day to see the city. More great food and drinks and the weather was much more to my liking!
Still working on my backlog of negatives to scan, but here are a few of my favorite from the first batch. First, Montreal:
And San Francisco:
